The Hudson Music x Tama Stewart Copeland Snare Drum Giveaway

To celebrate the release of Stewart Copeland: Drumming in the Police and Beyond, we’ve teamed up with TAMA drums for an incredible giveaway.

One lucky winner will walk away with THE most identifiable sound in Stewart’s arsenal – his signature snare drum.

Stewart Copeland’s signature model is a faithful reproduction of the snare drum of “mysterious provenance” that he used with the Police and everything else from that time period. A brass shell that’s 0.5mm thicker than the standard 1mm shell and the combination of a die-cast batter hoop with a triple flanged bottom hoop provides sounds that easily penetrate what Copeland describes as the “dirge from the bass and the ear-piercing sounds of a guitar.”

Stewart Copeland: Drumming in the Police & Beyond

Combining detailed biographical and analytical text, note-for-note drum transcriptions, and many never-before-published photos, the book covers Stewart’s body of work with special emphasis on his legendary drumming in The Police.

Created with exclusive interviews and input from Stewart himself, the book presents a look behind the scenes of the recording of each Police album, as well as Stewart’s memories of his upbringing in the Middle East, early career in London, touring with The Police, and his perspective on the unique brand of drumming he brought to their classic albums. Each album is documented in detail, and a selection of songs are transcribed and broken down by author Joe Bergamini. Beautiful color photos document all the phases of Stewart’s storied career. The book includes a detailed gear section with diagrams of drum setups and specifics on Stewart’s equipment and sound, assembled under the supervision of Stewart’s longtime drum tech Jeff Seitz.

Among the 18 songs analyzed and transcribed are “Roxanne,” “Message in a Bottle,” “Walking on the Moon,” “Don’t Stand So Close to Me,” “Spirits in the Material World,” “Every Little Thing She Does is Magic,” “One World,” “Synchronicity II,” and more. There are also tracks included from Animal Logic, Oysterhead, Gizmodrome, and Stewart’s solo work.

Whether a pro drummer, music enthusiast, or a fan of The Police, you will be taken on an exciting, informative, and visual journey into the mind and work of the iconic Stewart Copeland in Stewart Copeland: Drumming in The Police and Beyond.
